Lutz's poison dart frog, (Ameerega flavopicta), is a species of poison dart frog. It is endemic to Brazil. Lutz's poison dart frog is also the only dendrobatid that is semi-aquatic. A strong swimmer, it can outpace most other small frogs and can stay submerged for up to five minutes. It prefers to remain close to the surface, however. On land, A. flavopicta is shy and reclusive, but in water it is extremely bold.
It is of note that Lutz's poison dart frog has non-webbed, toad-like feet, but still manages to cruise through the water with surprising ease.
